Rise and shine, ladies! I hope you got your grub on yesterday. I think I gained at least a pound, but I look at it as carbo-loading for Black Friday.
Black Friday — what an ominous phrase, right? Overlooking, for a moment, the irony of dedicating the day after Thanksgiving to shopping, are you hitting any stores? I’m building my shopping list right now (great list of ongoing health & beauty deals). I forgot to do any serious Black Friday planning this year, so I’m winging it today. So far this morning I’ve tracked down a few interesting deals…
Bath & Body Works: AWESOME sales storewide, like their buy 3, get 3 free Signature Collection sale; a $100 Limited Edition VIP Gift Bag w/$40 purchase for $15; comfy-looking robes for $29.50, marked from from $49.50.
The Body Shop: Buy one, get one free on all seasonal bath and body, home fragrance, accessories and gift sets. Scents include Merry Cranberry, Nutmeg & Vanilla, Black Velvet Apricot and more.
CVS: Of course, you have to sign up for their free CVS card for most of these, but they’ve got a buy 1, get 1 free on Revlon (and many Cover Girl) cosmetics and beauty tools; Clairol Herbal Essences Conditioner or Shampoo for $3 each; a Conair Ceramic Straightener for $10 (always nice to have a spare).
The Gap: 50% off all women’s and men’s sweaters, pajama pants and cozy fleece for kids and babies also 50% off.
H&M: 25 percent off one item of your choice from 8-10 a.m. Friday. Select items storewide will be marked down to $5 and $10.

If you’re going to the mall today or tomorrow, stop by Coach, Calvin Klein, Aerospostale, Victoria’s Secret, Polo Ralph Lauren, Nike (need a new pair of running shoes?), BCBG Max Azria and/or Tommy Hilfiger (I heard a rumor they were doing a 40% off the entire store today, but I haven’t been able to confirm). I’ve seen some great Black Friday deals from these stores in past years. I’m not sure what they’ve got going on this time around.
Good luck out there!
